In this latest episode of Redacted Tonight, Lee Camp reveals a foul smelling situation in North Carolina that has implications for environmental justice everywhere. The state’s legislators overrode their governor’s veto of a bill that would make it difficult for residents to sue pig factory farms that literally spray swine feces into the air. The air may be hazy with the stench of pig poop, but the state’s choice of corporate industry profits over their constituents’ health and well-being is crystal clear. Later Lee covers how late to the game the Washington Post is on reporting about the income inequality that Occupy Wall Street protesters have been shouting about for years. In the second half, Correspondent Natalie McGill joins Lee at the desk to reveal the government’s latest strategy of suing the working class to recoup student loan debt, when going after their paychecks and benefits wasn’t enough. Finally, Correspondent John F. O’Donnell shows how MSNBC, corporate America’s left wing media refuge, is now embracing right-wing pundits all in an effort to cater to parent company and evil telecom monopoly Comcast. This and more on the latest Redacted Tonight.

In this latest episode of Redacted Tonight VIP, Lee Camp talks with Dr. William Pepper, an attorney and author of the recent book, “The Plot to Kill King” in which Pepper presents evidence that it wasn’t in fact James Earl Ray who assassinated Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. in Memphis in 1968. Pepper, an attorney who interrogated Ray a decade after King’s death, tells Lee who the real players are behind the shooting. While there was still one shooter, there was a bevy of co-conspirators, including state and federal government officials, who plotted the details of how Ray, who died in 1998, would become the fall guy in an assassination that would spark riots all across urban America. On behalf of King’s family, Pepper brought a civil action suit in 1999 against those involved in King’s death, bringing evidence before the courts that was never brought before the state 30 years earlier—including Ray’s alibi that placed him far from the crime scene. Dr. Pepper’s investigation was not without criticism. Despite violent threats to Dr. Pepper’s family and being lambasted by the mainstream media, the details of his private investigation leave you with no choice but to second guess everything you thought you knew about a death that was a defining moment in the Civil Rights Movement.

Lee explains all of the new pushes by the telecoms and the FCC to undermine internet freedom, one of which is them going so far as to actually call their attempts at crushing internet freedom, you guessed it – INTERNET FREEDOM.

O’Donnell joins Lee at the desk to talk about the insurmountable financial crisis Puerto Rico is dealing with. They’re currently crippled by $123 billion in debt. And the dirty little secret is, in large part, this is because Puerto Rico has been colonized and exploited by the U.S. for over a century. Lee and John expose the redacted reality. Finally, correspondent Naomi Karavani files a report based on a new study about how money in politics influences politicians. We all know money in politics is corrupting our system, but this study now actually has the data. It focuses on two issues: Dodd-Frank financial regulation legislation and Net Neutrality.

Lee Camp covers the “language of war.” He delves into how the government and mainstream media outlets try to soften and normalize barbaric bombing by using manipulative words to describe it all. Lee breaks down a ridiculous CNN clip about Tomahawk missiles, which is essentially a massive, glorified advertisement for waging more war. He also shows how MSNBC and Fox News both gush over missile strikes and praise Trump for them. Next, Lee covers the snap election that Prime Minister Theresa May is calling for in the UK. The US is subjected to TWO FULL YEARS of soul-sucking media coverage of the presidential election. The question Lee asks is, “Why can’t WE have snap elections?!” Lee also gets into how churches and religious institutions of all kinds get to skip out on paying billions upon billions of dollars in taxes every year. This would possibly be somewhat understandable if they were actually using most of their money for charity, but studies show, unfortunately, they are not. In the second half of the show, correspondent Natalie McGill joins Lee at the desk to talk about how people in rural Tennessee are getting screwed over by the big telecoms. The people can potentially easily have access to way faster, municipal broadband internet, but they’re getting screwed by the power and corruption of Comcast and AT&T. Also, correspondent John F. O’Donnell files a report about how corporate media outlets, both in print and on TV, will present commentators/writers as being independent experts touting the value of war when, in reality, these people work directly for the weapons industry, personally profiting off of our bombing. All of this on the newest episode of Redacted Tonight!
Lee Camp covers the media’s sickening celebration after the U.S. drops lethal weapons in the Middle East. As CNN, MSNBC, and others behave like the media arm of the Pentagon, the truth behind why we attacked is obfuscated. And as news anchors finally knight Trump president, where are the voices opposing war? Then Lee covers a lawsuit against the EPA, because they ignored TOXIC chemicals that are widely used in agriculture, and that means, yes, our food supply. In the second half of the show, correspondent Naomi Karavani joins Lee at the desk to discuss the assault on science, the Science March and the most radical group of scientist-activists that will be at the rally.

When scientists consider a serious alternative to taking emissions and climate change seriously, what could go wrong after we pump aerosol injections 20 kilometers into the sky? Nothing, right? RIGHT? Next Lee covers how companies have started inserting microchips into the hands of their employees. Little will remain of privacy after the company can track your every movement, and after the government and hackers take advantage of this new technology. In the second half of the show, correspondent John F. O’Donnell joins Lee at the desk to reveals what’s behind the new North Carolina anti-LGBTQ law HB2, known as the “bathroom bill.” Did North Carolina finally agree to more tolerance or will there be extra security on the bathroom line? Finally, correspondent Naomi Karavani covers the recent disappearance of the drone tracking app “Metadata Plus” from the Apple App store and how new technology might be used to enlighten Americans or keep us in the dark. This and more on Redacted Tonight.
Redacted Tonight #142-Next Financial Collapse On Horizon, Smart Bombs But Dumb Kids, Religious Left Wakes Up
Lee Camp explains that there is another financial crisis looming over us. Just like in 2008/2009 when everybody was defaulting on mortgages, the same thing may happen very soon with student loan debt. The numbers of total debt and the percentage of people in default are nearly identical to the housing crisis. It’s a scary proposition, but certainly worth knowing about because these student loans are backed by the government, which really means us, the taxpayer. Next, Lee discusses the wake of Trump’s abysmal 2018 budget proposal. White House Budget Director, Mick Mulvaney, hit the news talk show circuit to make a very poor case for why gutting government programs vital to educating Americans and cleaning our air are just trimming the fat. Lee eviscerates him in this scathing piece. In the second half of the show, correspondent Natalie McGill joins Lee at the desk to reveal the stunning display of irony of right-wing lawmakers now proposing laws that would punish college students who protest campus guest speakers, absurdly claiming it’s in the name of preserving free speech. Finally, correspondent John F. O’Donnell files a report about the emergence of the religious left in response to Donald Trump. This and more on Redacted Tonight.

O’Donnell delves into the Dumpster fire that is Trump’s 2018 budget proposal and how it will scorch social services that provide basic needs for Americans.

It’s a disgusting web of bad operators, and it’s definitely worth knowing about. Lee also covers the new Wikileaks CIA leaks. These leaks show that the CIA has been spying on us through, not only our phones, but also our TVs and cars. This gross violation is truly disturbing. Lee breaks it all down. In the second half of the show, Redacted correspondent Natalie McGill joins Lee at the desk to discuss Robo-Bees. Yes, ROBOTIC BEES! Because of colony collapse and climate change, lots of organic bees are dying. Robo-Bees are being used to pick up the pollinating slack. Is this a great innovation or completely horrible?
